Welcome gardening friends, thanks for stopping by!
If you’re excited to work in your yard or garden, but not sure what to do in the cold December weather, then you’ve come to the right place! We’ve put together a list of things to do throughout the month.
You may not need to do everything on this list. For example, if you don’t have Christmas lights to hang or snow to remove, skip over those items on the list. Just pick what applies to your home and yard and plan out when you will do it all throughout the month!
December Gardening To-Do List
➺Check Ice & Snow Removal Products and replenish if necessary, before it snows
➺Make Sure your snow shovels and/or snow blower are in good repair, before you need them
➺Hang Christmas Lights Outside if you decorate with them, be sure to connect only 3 strands together—more than 3 can overload the circuit
➺Decorate Indoors with beautiful poinsettia plants
➺Buy An Amaryllis Bulb as a gift for your favorite gardener
➺Buy A Fresh-Cut Tree early in the season for the best selection
➺Impress Your Friends when you tell them your well-watered fresh-cut Christmas tree is less flammable than an artificial tree
➺Watch Trees during/after big snow storms, they may need snow knocked from their branches to avoid breakage
Don’t miss the list for January!
